    Screen freezing and showing artifacts, R9 390 Nitro

    rekinxxxl

      So recently I've been having issue when playing games/or even starting them. The screen freezes and shows artifacts(picture in attachment). After that PC needs to force restart because it isnt responding. Sometimes after turning PC on again after the issue, it might show up when being on desktop after few minutes. It doesnt happen always, but it is being more and more frequent now.

      The GPU is Sapphire R9 390 Nitro - was never overclocked, was used for long rendering in Blender and playing games in high quality and has newest 17.11.2 driver.

      Any idea of what might be the problem? Might it be some bug or GPU possibly dying? Or it might be something not related to GPU?
